Hamburger Pot Pie with Herb Biscuits

Teresa Ambra

I love, love, love Hamburger Pot Pie with Herb Biscuits! Every now and then you hit a bulls-eye with a new recipe try. This was one of those recipes. The hamburger filling is delicious. It’s filled with potatoes, carrots, celery, leeks, onions and several seasonings that make it irresistible. Then it’s topped with herb-flavored biscuits. The combination is unbeatable and one we enjoyed down to the very last drop. The leftovers were also wonderful.

I have to admit I love pot pies. Turkey, Chicken, Beef, gluten free–I even have one with beef and butternut squash which is terrific. I’ve never made one with hamburger before. It was fantastic and the biscuits were delicious too. I found this Hamburger Pot Pie with Herb Biscuits totally satisfying, filling and one of the best comfort foods ever!

If you’re looking for a tasty recipe that’s great for any family meal, I can’t rave about this entree enough. It isn’t something you can slap together in five tor ten minutes, but it’s absolutely heavenly and worth the effort. It’s fairly economical and you can probably squeeze 12 servings out of this recipe if you serve it with a side salad and fruit.

Ingredients
  

BEEF FILLING:

  • 2 cups potatoes peeled and cubed
  • 2 cups carrots peeled and cubed
  • 2 tbsp. avocado oil
  • 2 large sweet onions diced (or use white onions) (I used one whopper-sized onion)
  • 1 large leek green top removed, diced
  • 2 ribs celery diced
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 1/2-3 lbs. 93-96% lean ground beef
  • 1/2 cup UNBLEACHED all-purpose flour
  • 1 qt. beef stock
  • 1/4 cup tomato paste (Mix paste with 1/4 to 1/2 cup water)
  • 1 tsp. sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp. ground black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp. fresh thyme minced (I used 1/2 tsp. dried thyme)
  • 1/2 tsp. marjoram
  • 1 tsp. dried parsley (or half teaspoon fresh parsley)
  • water as needed to parboil potatoes and carrots

HERB BISCUITS:

  • 2 cups self-rising flour plus more for working the dough
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter cubed and chilled
  • 1 tbsp. fresh thyme minced
  • 1 tbsp. fresh oregano minced
  • 2 tbsp. curly leaf parsley minced
  • 1 cup buttermilk or soured milk (see note below)
  • avocado oil (or olive oil)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • additional thyme minced, for top of biscuits

Instructions
 

BEEF FILLING:

  • In a medium-sized saucepan over medium to high heat, bring water to a boil.
  • Add potatoes and carrots and parboil for 5 minutes or until slightly tender.
  • Drain and set aside.
  • In a large stock pot or Dutch oven, heat oil over medium to high heat.
  • Add onions, leek and celery.
  • Cook about five minutes, until veggies are tender.
  • Add garlic and cook an additional two minutes until garlic is fragrant.
  • Add ground beef and continue cooking until beef is no longer pink.
  • Stir in flour until completely incorporated.
  • Slowly add beef stock, about ¼ cup at a time stirring until all the stock is added.
  • Add tomato sauce and seasonings.
  • Stir in drained potatoes and carrots.
  • Check seasoning and increase if necessary.
  • Remove from heat.
  • Pour mixture into a well-greased 9x13” glass baking dish.
  • Top with Herb Biscuits.
  • Sprinkle biscuits with salt, pepper and fresh thyme.
  • Bake at 350° for 45-60 minutes or until mixture is bubbly and biscuits are golden brown.

HERB BISCUITS:

  • Place flour in a large mixing bowl. Stir in salt.
  • Cut in butter with a pastry mixer until flour resembles coarse crumbs.
  • Stir in herbs and pepper.
  • Pour in milk and stir until well mixed.
  • The dough will be soft and sticky.
  • Place dough onto a well-floured surface.
  • Sprinkle with additional flour and continue to work the flour into the dough, kneading gently until it is no longer sticky and forms a ball.
  • Roll dough out to 1 or 1 1/2 inches thick.
  • Cut biscuits with a 2-inch biscuit cutter dipped in flour.
  • Gently re-form and re-roll dough until all of the scraps are used up.
  • Cover beef filling with herb biscuits.
  • Brush tops of biscuits with avocado oil and sprinkle with salt, pepper and fresh thyme leaves.
  • Bake at 350° for 45-60 minutes or until mixture is bubbly and biscuits are golden brown.

Notes

NOTE: If you do not have self rising flour, add 1 ½ tsp. baking powder, 1 tsp. baking soda and ½ tsp. salt to unbleached all-purpose flour.
NOTE: To make buttermilk, place regular milk in a cup measure. Add 2 tbsp. white vinegar or lemon juice. Allow milk to sit on counter for about 5 minutes until it thickens. Use in place of buttermilk in recipe.
NOTE: If you use anything under 93% lean ground beef, you will need to drain the meat before adding the beef broth.
NOTE: Make sure you cook the casserole long enough that the biscuits are not dough in the middle. Because they're thicker they will take longer to cook all the way through than flatter biscuits.
